3 Campus Security Sessions Available at GSX 2019

Here are three of the offerings available at GSX 2019 for campus security professionals.

As the editor for Campus Security & Life Safety, I was excited to learn that GSX 2019 is offering sessions pertaining to campus security.

GSX is a conference that features cyber, operational and physical security professionals from across the private and public sectors, and more.

If you are like me and take a particular interest in campus security, here are three courses being offered:

The Gap Between School Violence and Security Solutions: What's Missing?


With more advanced security technology being used on campuses that should directly correlate to a decrease in mass shootings, bullying and other adversities. However, that is not the case. This session dives into the widening gap between school-based adversity and the solutions being deployed to stop them.

Reducing Risk in K-12 Schools After Hours

Centered around protecting school children once they are dismissed for the day, the course looks at how to create a security plan for after hours. It also explores different scenarios to identify risks, determine mitigation strategies and apply national best practices.

The Illinois School and Campus Safety Program: A Winning Model

Lead by the Illinois Terrorism Task Force, the session focuses on how the free courses the force gave to K-12 schools and universities has helped to keep the campuses safe. Courses that the task has offered range from emergency planning and response to basic and advanced course of behavioral threat assessment.

  • Ahead of Current Events Ahead of Current Events

    In this episode, Ralph C. Jensen chats with Dana Barnes, president of global government at Dataminr. We talk about the evolution of Dataminr and how data software benefits business and personnel alike. Dataminr delivers the earliest warnings on high impact events and critical information far in advance of other sources, enabling faster response, more effective risk mitigation for both public and private sector organizations. Barnes recites Dataminr history and how their platform works. With so much emphasis on cybersecurity, Barnes goes into detail about his cybersecurity background and the measures Dataminr takes to ensure safe and secure implementation.
